Psalm 25: 7 ” Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to Your love remember me, for You are good, O Lord.”

It’s not God that loads us down with guilt and shame about our past.  In fact, it’s quite the opposite.  For it tells us in Psalm 103: 8-13, “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.  He will not always accuse, nor will He harbor His anger forever; He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.”  It’s only God’s merciful kindness towards us that takes our sins and throws them all into the Sea of Forgetfulness.  It’s only us that dredge them back up and torture ourselves with them.
